The Voice of Arkansas Volleyball Arkansas volleyball arena announcer John Norwood returns for his ninth year with the Razorback volleyball team in 2009. In addition to the pre-match introductions, Norwood helps educate fans by “calling” the match. He is instrumental in keeping the crowd involved by starting a cheer after each point.
The Arkansas Stat Crew The Arkansas stat crew provides NCAA statistics for coaches, media and fans at all Arkansas volleyball matches. The stat crew veteran is Ben Pinter who joined the volleyball stat crew at the program’s inception in 1994 and has been with us ever since. Pinter is joined by Chad and Jackie Collie, Sherryl Robinson and Mary Lee. The Collies and Robinson are also long-time stat crew members. Keith and Mary Line run the volleyball scoreboard for home meets. Keith is a former Arkansas swimming coach who has stayed involved with many of the Razorback programs. Jerry Hood provides the sound. Hood is a recent but enthusiastic addition. In addition to volleyball, most of the people on the Arkansas volleyball stat crew also work football, men’s and women’s basketball and softball. Our thanks to them for their support at all Razorback events.
